in a good, serious debate over the issues of the day. you can join the debate any time by giving us a call at 1-866-55-press. we lost one united states senator yesterday. senator dan inouye from hawaii. we got a new united states senator, senator tim scott. he will be congressman now from south carolina. the first black in the united states senate and will be the only african-american in the united states senate. the first black from the south since 1901. that's the good news. bad news is he has every bit as tea party crazy as jim demint whose place he takes in the senate. we'll bring you more about that and a whole lot more but first here's the latest, today's current news update, lisa ferguson's got it out in los angeles. hi lisa, good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. president obama has another light day on his schedule today. just an afternoon meeting with defense secretary leon panetta. that's after a new fiscal cliff offer is now on the table showing he and speaker boehner could be closer to rea

still haven't learned the lesson. perhaps the only good news there is it gives us something to talk about when we turn the corner into next year. what a year it has been. and while 2013 will not see a major national election in this country, we can be sure that most republicans will obstruct and some democrats will appease. we can be sure that the middle east will continue to be a source of vexing questions that need solutions and we can be very sure that wall street will not solve itself. which is why i will be here every weekday night to drill down deep and deliver my views on what matters most. have a wonderful holiday. and a wonderful year.

will not be silent any longer. >> cenk: that is great to hear. congressman from kentucky joins us now. congressman, great to talk to you. >> hey cenk. >> cenk: hey there. first, let's talk about the silence in the years before. why do you think that happened, whether it's you or other politicians related to this democratic or republican? >> well, you know, first of all my voting record's been very consistent. i have an f. rating from the n.r.a. the only f. i've r. been proud of, i think maybe the only i've ever gotten. i'm proud of it. i think i fell into the trap that so many of us do in congress, that there's a tragedy, the news cycle ends, there doesn't seem to be anything happen, so we shut up. we say ok, nothing's going to ever happen. then i realized sitting around this weekend watching the agony of this nation, that the reason nothing happens is because we don't persist in our speaking out. i said that's not going to happen anymore. i'm going to keep talking. you know, cenk, i don't know if you say it, but a day or two before the shooting in newtown there was a news report, a video security

"young turks," thank you. >> eliot: good evening. i'm eliot spitzer and this is "viewpoint." it has now been six days since the tragic shooting at sandy hook elementary school where 26 people were murdered children. funerals continued for the victims as today grace mcdonnell, benjamin wheeler allison wyatt, catherine hubbard and jesse lewis and teacher annemarie was laid to rest. the task force met for the first time today. at the top of the meeting, joe biden stressed the task force will look at all factors contributing to gun violence including mental health and cultural issues. a balanced approach the democrats see as a way to garner republican support for modest gun control. >> gun control in reasonable ways, yes but also mental illness, violence and those kinds of things, when i talk to my republican colleagues in the senate who are pro nra in the last few days, they express that over and over a

talking about these issues, obviously those of us in this arena for so many years. that's what everybody is asking, right? will this time actually be different. my sense is that it is. i hope i'm right. you know what i mean. when people say now is not the time. when? when 100 first graders get shot in the face. would that be a better time? >> now is exactly the time. >> it is exactly the time. >> i was reading with the ar-15 the assault rifle. they're licensed, you can own them in germany but you can only shoot three bullets and then have to reload to prevent these kind of tragedies. >> there was also a similar incidence in china of someone going in but they didn't have a gun so nobody died. it happened on the exact same day. >> stephanie: if we all go to our regular talking points, we're never going to get anything done. all of those catchphrases, guns don't kill people, all of that stuff, there is something we can do. and i honestly feel like everything's a part of it. mental health, cutbacks that affe
